Learn from the past Saturday at this family-friendly gathering about how things used to be done at the time of Abraham Lincoln. Some of the demonstrations include: gardening, food dehydration, Civil War food ways, canning, corn shelling and grinding, corn cob pipe, broom and barrel making. Enjoy period music while the kids can learn about beekeepers and honey production, make mustard, and record and watch their own farm report with farm broadcaster Peggy Fish. There will also be children’s games, and crafts with items kids can take home with them. For more information, visit www.presidentlincoln.org.
